to gradually ramp up until it's about a trillion dollars a year. the white house and joe biden would like to introduce that by 10%, the orange section in here. that's the part they want to get rid of. now, their opponents say this part you're getting rid of, that's real care. you are hurting people by taking away benefits. no, it's not. these are reductions and fees, payments that we're making to hospitals and health care programs. in a word this is waste, we can and should get rid of it. but now let's look at the republican pan. the same landscape. same increase up to $1 trillion and would like to reduce it by 10%, but want to rely on private sector, not the government and to do that, they are going to use vouchers. they don't really like that word, but that's what it is in its essence. right now, if you are on medicare, what happens, the government pays medicare. medicare pays the hospital. the hospital takes care of you. under this plan, the government would pay you and you would pay medicare or a private insurance company to take care of you. they believe this will create competition
beau will discuss. first, governor romney on the warpath over libya, saying joe biden is in complete denial when he said during the debate last night the white house had no clue the u.s. consulate in benghazi wanted more security before the deadly attack that killed the ambassador. let's get right to our first guest to talk about it. republican congressman mike rogers, chairman of the house select committee on intelligence. mr. rogers, thank you for joining me. let me ask you straight away about your reaction to this issue that's now blowing up pretty big today about what joe biden said about what was known by we, and i use the word we advisedly. let's play first of all what was said by joe biden and by paul ryan in the debate last night. >> this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the romney/ryan ticket for making this an issue. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security. >> i was surprised when he said that, because as a viewer, watching, i was like well, hang on a secon
night. foe joe biden and paul ryan, tonight's the night. the one and only vice presidential debate at the 2012 campaign season. we'll spend much of this hour on the race, the impact such as it is for second banana's. cnn's john king is counting down to the big event from his post in washington, d.c. dana bash join us. john, you write that the vice president debate "no game changer but could shift momentum." how joe. >> reporter: look what happened since the first presidential debate. governor romney has momentum. moved ahead of the president by a smidgen in the national polls. caught up or gained ground in several key battleground states, ohio, virginia, florida, colorado, and a built of a breeze at his back and republicans think they have momentum. in this debate, americans pick presidents, not vice-presidents. not to downplay the stakes, but the presidential debates are more important. if joe biden can turn a strong performance maybe halt the republican momentum. if paul ryan can, republicans keep the momentum going into next week. >> john, playing sound bites leading into a lot
in america, who counts. it's joe johns. he is awesome, and it's sunday night at 8:00 eastern. i highly recommend you tune in to watch. thank you for watching us. do appreciate it. my friend and my league and a very smart lady suzanne malveaux takes over the reigns now with "newsroom international." >>> welcome to "newsroom international." i'm suzanne malveaux. we're going around the world in 60 minutes. here's what's going on right now. >> people who work at the u.s. embassy in yemen for more than 20 years shot dead. men on motorcycles, they ambushed his car, and she they killed him. officials in yemen say it looks like the work of al qaeda. more of what we know about the killing and why he may have been a terrorist target coming up in just a couple of minutes. also, revelation from former teammates of superstar cyclist lance armstrong. one says we hid from doping tests. he said armstrong had & his teammates, they were part of the most sophisticated and successful doping program in cycling history. the agency says 11 cyclists came forward to admit their use of banned performance enhanc
. joe biden faces a formidable foe, in himself, most americans perceive him unfavorably. ryan better in both areas, 44% favorable compared to 40% unfavorable. >> joe biden has been doing this a long time. he ran for president twice, sitting vice president. he has been on this big stage many times before. that's new for me. i'm just doing my homework, studying the issues. i know how he'll come and attack us. the problem he has is he has barack obama's record he has to run on. >> are you intimidated at all, ba based on the background you just skroibed? >> no, i'm not intimidated. i'm actually excited about it. >> what i've been doing mostly is, quite frankly, studying up on congressman ryan's positions on the issues. and -- and governor romney has embraced at least everything i can see. i don't want to say anything in the debate that's not completely accurate. >> there she is, white house correspondent brianna keilar in danville, kentucky. bk, people vote for president not vice president. but this one is important, i think, because of the president's showing last time. am i wrong on th
the vice presidential candidates, no one had a bad night. nobody was too polite. instead joe biden, paul ryan, simply let it fly and when it was over the american people scored it a draw. cnn/orc poll of debate watchers showed that 48% felt that paul ryan won. 44% said that the vice president joe biden won. of course that would be a statistical tie when you calculate in the margin of error. we begin with cnn's dana bash with some of the highlights of the night. good morning. >> good morning. we were here. we watched it all. you really could feel the intensity of it from the beginning. all 90 minutes. it was very intense. there were some smiles and smirks on both sides. but all in all it was very substantive. these were two men who both came ready to tangle. >> world -- >> thank heavens -- >> reporter: on taxes. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve this important preferences for middle class taxpayers. >> not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. >> on medicare. >> they just allow medicare to bargain for the cost of drugs like medicaid can, that would sa
's game down. we're counting down to tonight's one and only vice presidential debate between joe biden and paul ryan. the stakes are high. probably higher than either campaign wants to admit. biden will try to create some momentum for the obama team while ryan will try to prove last week's debate was not a one and done. a small post debate rise for romney, where in virginia romney picked up three points. he leads there, though a doifrnt poll from cbs shows obama still leading there. the "wall street journal" poll, mitt romney trails in florida and is down six in ohio. a quinnipiac poll shows him up three points in three other states. cnn's paul steinhauser is at the site in danville, kentucky with an inside look. >> reporter: 14 hours from now behind me on this stage, the only vice presidential debate in the campaign. they've been behind closed doors getting ready for this big showdown. the republican running mate got here to kentucky yesterday. before he arrived, he played a little bit of the expectations game, kind of lowering the bar for himself. >> joe biden has been on this stage
, shaking his head. what does this tell you that joe biden was doing? >> well, different people are going to interpret this differently. certainly, it comes across as dismissive. joe biden has some of the most authentic nonverbals. comes across as very real. it's both a blessing and a curse. >> what he's doing here with his hands. what is this all about? >> this is interesting because he's smiling, but what he's doing with his hands where he's pulling them up close to his face and acatually touching his face is something that you do when you're feeling a little bit threatened and you're protecting yourself. >> you're telling me, amy, paul ryan raises his eyebrows a lot and tell me what you mean. >> see, his eyebrows are raised and his brow is furrowed and his eyes are wide and all of that indicates surprise. this is the facial expression that is universally associated with surprise across culture. the problem is that when you overuse it, it is as if you're writing an e-mail in all caps. >> now, we're talking about he looked nervous and anxious. here, though, you think this is significant
are working overtime. so up first here, paul ryan and joe biden battling it out in the bluegrass state, and unlike last week's presidential debate, this one had a little bit of fire. the vice president coming out swinging, ryan keeping cool and counterpunching. >> so let's go to the score cards. the cnn orc poll taken right after the debate showed 48% of the voters who watched thought paul ryan won. 44% favored joe biden. that's basically a statistical draw. senior congressional correspondent dana bash is live from danville, kentucky this morning, and dana, this was a much more spirited debate this time around, a debate with a capital "d." >> reporter: oh, it sure was. i was in the hall last night, and it was rocking and rolling from the beginning. pretty much right through the entire 90 minutes. there was some grimacing and grinning, a lot of it actually on the left. there was some smirking on the right, but all in all it was quite a substantive debate on the central issues of the day. these were two men who both came ready to tangle. >> i don't know what world these guys are in. >> r
going in from the perspective of the democrats what joe biden's aides and especially those closest to the process of them preparing was make up for the bad debate that the obama campaign knows that the president had last week. he did that and most importantly reenergizing the democratic base. that was, you know, some would argue and republicans are arguing forcefully that he did it too much that he went overboard in his reaction in making sure not to nod like the president did and on the republican side, what they wanted to make sure was that -- excuse me, paul ryan could sit on the same stage in a legitimate way with the vice president. i think that there's no question he did that. the debate that is happening right now on the twitter verse between the campaigns is what i just talked about whether or not joe biden went too far. he was rude, he was out of control and i'll bet you'll see something on saturday night live, he was doing what he had to do. >> i think you hit it on the head. that is what will show up on snl and snl had a huge impact on the presidential campaign. >> i loo
to wolf blitzer. "the situation room" begins now. >>> brooke, thanks very much. happening now, joe biden isn't the only one who's smiling today. we're looking ahead to the next round in the presidential debates including what lessons the president might want to take from his running mate's performance. also, fooling iran. we're taking you inside the real life cia thriller in movie theaters right now. >>> i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with today's double declarations of victory after the vice presidential debate. first, the republicans. in a little bit mitt romney teams up with congressman paul ryan in the swing state of ohio. and you're going to see their rally live right here in "the situation room." already today romney's called his running mate's debate performance thoughtful, respectful, steady and poised. our national political correspondent jim acosta has more now on the republican's post debate spin. >> reporter: wolf, even though paul ryan said he saw it coming, republican strategists i talk to in the post debate spin room said they were not expec

joe biden got the most negative ratings of the entire debate of the undecided voter i was with. why was this so controversial? those voters were wondering why the request for more security was turned down. eric nordstrom was questioned with this very issue on capitol hill this week. >> you were asking for more assets, more personnel, but the danger pay increased. they didn't tell you we didn't have resources, congress just cut your budget. they gave you an increase because the danger was rising. >> that's correct. they gave us an increase. >> when joe biden said we knew nothing about this request for security, who is the we? jay carney cleared that up. >> he was speaking directly for himself and the president, he meant the white house. >> if the president and the vice president, the white house didn't know about the security requests, then who is to blame for the security lapse in libya on september 11th? jay carney again. >> i want to be clear, it was never in the presidential daily brief or anything like that. >> i am not going to sit and talk to you about this. i'm not, ed. i'm s

joe biden. you can watch extensive coverage all starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern tomorrow night. here in washington this afternoon the investigation into the september 11th attack on the u.s. diplomatic consulate in benghazi, libya, turned sharply political. even as we learn new details about what happened before and after the deadly attack. let's go to cnn's foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty. she's got the latest information. how did it go, jill? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you it was extremely vi tri alic. we heard this exchange extraordinary between dennis ross, congressman from florida, republican, directly asking the ambassador, patrick kennedy, whether or not there was any political pressure. ambassador kennedy said, on my honor after 39 years of serving i can guarantee you there was no political pressure applied. and ross countered that by saying then it was professional protocol malpractice. that is the level of discussion that we heard this afternoon. >> will be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. >> reporter: within minutes the congressional he
in danville, kentucky, and joe biden is getting ready for preparations. and paul ryan arrived, and mitt romney on the campaign trail in the battleground state of ohio. >> we have not had the strong leadership we needed in washington to take on our challenge, time and again, the president has told us he'd take on some of these things but has not. and then he turns around and tries to blame others, congress won't get together, congress won't get together unless there is a strong leadership that puts them together. he has not, i will. >> listen to what he told diane sawyer on abc. >> if you have a bad game, you just move on, move on the next one. and it makes you that much more determined. the difference between this and sports is, the stakes are so high. >> joining me now, to preview the debate, reince priebus. >> the president looks mean there, looking like he is coming back strong, looks like he had a poor game and flexing his muscles, are you frightened? >> no, he also said today that he thinks he has been too polite. so maybe it means instead of just calling mitt romney a liar once a day, he

. that was the assessment. >> that was also what joe biden got the most negative ratings of the entire debate among the undecided voters i was with last night. now, why was this comment so controversial? well, because those voters alreawere still wondering why the request for more security in libya was turned down. a security officer in libya was questioned about that very issue this week. >> you were asking for more assets, more resources, more personnel. that was denied, but the state department went back and reclassified it as more dangerous, the danger pay therefore increased. they didn't sell you the we didn't have resources, congress just cut your budget, they gave you an increase because the danger was rising, correct? >> that's correct. we received a danger pay increase. >> so, when joe biden said we knew nothing about this request for security, who is the we? well, jay carney, the white house spokesman in a white house briefing today cleared that up. >> he was speaking directly for himself and for the president. he meant the white house. >> so, if the president and the vice president, the

. i think you might agree with me here, that was very much so worth looking at twice. joe biden, paul ryan. they really went at it, especially biden. here he is, mr. fact check, joe biden, challenging congressman ryan on ryan's medicare plan. >> this is a plan that is bipartisan. it is a plan i put together with a prominent democrat senator from oregon. >> there is not one democrat who endorses it. not one democrat who signed the plan. >> my partner is a democrat from oregon. >> he says he no longer supports your plan. >> we put it together with the former clinton budget director. >> and so it went. but now all of a sudden we have mitt romney checking joe biden's facts concerning the consulate attack in libya. and this is something you haven't yet heard. this is mitt romney speaking just a short time ago, here he is in richmond, virginia, you need to hear this. mitt romney. >> the vice president directly contradicted the sworn testimony of state department officials. he's doubling down on denial. and we need to understand exactly what happened. when the vice president of the united st

that joe biden did when they turned toward the economy was raise the auto bailout. one out of eight jobs in ohio is tied to the auto industry, of the 88 counties in ohio, 82 have automotive related industries in those counties. that's wildly popular in ohio. the obama campaign is making the case and i think they've got the better of the argument that the governor opposed, governor romney opposed the auto bailout and that's i think an economics jobs issue that the obama people are going to continue to push. >> patrick, a good chunk of governor romney's bounce came from this rise in republican enthusiasm after the debate. if the president is able to bounce back at the next one and move the needle on democratic enthusiasm, what does that do to the romney lead? >> i think romney needs to look at this now and look at the battleground states that are the must-wins, florida and ohio, he's so centralized in boston, i would send 100 people to florida, 100 people to ohio and just start gubernatorial races for the time being because that's how you get door-to-door retail politics. the debate last n
